    iPhoto album is thumbnails only
    Hi

    I have about 12,000 photos stored in iPhoto, organised into albums and it all works fine - except one particular album which only has thumbnails. I have a complete backup of the originals on an external drive and have imported them again but as soon as I detach the external hard drive, the album reverts to thumbnails only and can't find the original photo. Why are these photos not being imported into the iPhoto database?

    Cheers, sting

    Have you got the "Copy Items To iPhoto Library" option in iPhoto Preferences ticked when you import those particular photos?
